This course takes a fascinating look at the individual and social processes that help to shape the world we live in. The study of behavioural sciences combines elements of psychology and sociology to explore how individuals behave, and how society functions. It looks at life as we live it, and the situations we all know and experience, to understand what goes on under the surface.
